Hasegawa 1/72 scale Sukhoi Su-33 “Flanker-D”

This model kit is beautiful, well-engineered, and, despite its size and number of parts, a relatively simple build.

Published: August 5, 2011
Hasegawa’s new tooling of the "Flanker-D" is well executed in gray plastic with beautifully engraved panel lines and fine surface detail.

The kit includes a full complement of weapons in addition to options for open or closed positioning of the canopy, speed brake, and louvered auxiliary air doors given as inserts for the intakes. An excellent cockpit tub is provided, with raised panel and console detail or, if you prefer, decals for the instruments.
